The gift will be used primarily for equipping the university’s new brewing lab in the former Early Childhood Center in the Gifford Building, according to CSU. The $100,000 gift, which is being donated through the Community Foundation of Northern Colorado, is a combined contribution from the brewery and Doug and Wynne Odell.
This isn’t the first time Odell Brewing has donated to CSU. In 2008, Odell donated a brewing system to CSU.
In April, Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc. donated $250,000 to the Fermentation Science and Technology program.
